Japanese Cars in London


Several years ago on a trip to Japan I spotted what I would call ‘Postman Pat’ cars- those that looked identical to the van used by Postman Pat. Fairly simple to describe – imagine the drawing you would make of a van – rectangular box with wheels at the bottom !

Anyways, a few months back I discovered an exhibition of Japanese cars on at the Science Museum. Like any visiting exhibition you get your hopes up and expect a huge number of exhibits. I remember in Hamburg there being an exhibition from Xi’an of the Chinese warriors. Of course I went expecting to see a full army – one warrior ! In the end, there were a few Japanese cars and I managed to take a few pics::

However, to my delight I was walking through London yesterday (off Regent Street) and spotted this:

It’s amazing with all the technology we have in the world today and we end up with a look that a 4 year old child could have drawn at a high level. I guess the simplicity is what I like about it !
